There’s one cloth diaper gift I consistently love to give to my friends who are either new to using cloth diapers or are just having a baby. I chose this cloth diaper gift for a few reasons: 1.) It’s a great diaper. 2.) It’s gender neutral. 3.) It’s really, really awesome.
That diaper? The Happy Heinys Glow in the Dark Skulls diaper. I love that diaper. It’s a pocket diaper, which is the same type as the majority of my cloth diaper stash. I chose the snap closures, although I had the option between snaps and Velcro when I bought them. Every single one of my friends loved that diaper, too. It was a really, really hard diaper to find… and I had super easy access because Cozy Bums, my local diaper dealer, sold it. A friend of mine has been jonesing for that particular diaper, so I was going to get it for her. And then I discovered that it was discontinued.
That was really, really disappointing.
Now it’s time to find a new, really awesome skull print for a cloth diaper gift.
Heck, if it’s awesome enough, I might add it to my own cloth diaper stash… not that I actually need any new diapers, but like that ever stops me. I see things listed on Etsy, but I’m always so afraid of trying things like that because, well, I live in Canada and my one friend who did order something on Etsy from Canada didn’t have a great experience. Shipping is so slow that PayPal’s protection is useless… By the time we determine that there’s a problem with shipping, it’s too late to ask PayPal to do a refund.
That means that if I decide to go through Etsy for a new cloth diaper gift, I’d have to do a few things: I’d have to have recommendations from friends that have used that vendor. I’d have to try the diaper myself because before I do a cloth diaper gift or have a diaper giveaway, I have to know that I’m giving away good quality diapers. After all, nothing is more lame than getting a really awesome looking cloth diaper that doesn’t work. (See my Duca Duca cloth diaper review for a case in point.)
Do you have any skull print cloth diaper patterns in your stash? Where did you find them? And are they really, really great?
